I'll still look into one, but chances are that I'll get an SKS or AK before a Nagant.

For what they cost right now, you'd be crazy not to get one...they're not going to be cheap forever...I spend more at the grocery store every week than what a MN costs...

In that case I might grab some just to clean them up and resell them later.

A gun is ALWAYS a wise investment, even it you never intend to shoot it.

True, plus a Nagant would be my first Big-Bore Rifle.

Mine is lighter than my mom's lever action rifle (Rossi .44 mag).

With surplus ammo, I barely notice the recoil, unless I let the edge of that plate hit my collar bone.

I find the lines EXTREMELY ergonomic for long range toting, well balanced and well contoured.

The only possible complaint I find with mine, is the bolt handle angle, along with the split in the rear of the receiver, makes it impossible to receiver mount any modern optics (you'll have to go with a cantilever, LER, or side mount as per the originals). This isn't a huge issue, as many aren't quite accurate enough to benefit from modern optics (burns my ass, because mine is, pitted bore and all).

Also, the length. Maybe fine for a combat rifle from yesteryear, but not all that great for a brush gun. Enter the M44, which will be my next mosin purchase. A carbine version of the original.

With out the bayonet attached, the 91/30 comes almost to my shoulder, and I'm dead at 6 feet tall.

That's exactly what I said. And who knows maybe in 60 years my grandkids might make some money off of it

Yep, got mine for 89 bucks. In comparison I spent about 60 a week in gas driving to work, we usually spend about 80 a week at Walmart on the weekly goods.

My mosin is probably my most favorite gun, it even beats my AR. At work one day I hit a one gallon paint can at 400 yards, had to walk it in with help from a coworker with binos but after 10 rounds I'd hit it a couple times. Plus its fun to shoot when people aren't expecting how loud they are. I hear a lot of OMG's that way.

A bottle of water has a 4000% markup. I understand about crappy service as it's the reason I went into business myself however, if you have a problem with a product you buy at Wal-Mart do you go back to the store a year later to try and return it? Nope, just think about that the next time you walk into your LGS. Now if they are rude and condescending then that's another story.
As a matter of fact, I don't patronize my local gun shop. They make a lot more than 20%. Guns I can buy at full retail for $400 they have marked at $800. I used to patronize the shop even though they are ridiculous price wise. I liked the idea of not having to deal with WalMart to get a box of ammo. Then the owner started complaining about gun safety in the shop. He had more to complain about the way I handle a weapon than any DI at Camp Pendleton. I am not exaggerating. In the end I expressed my thoughts on the matter and I have not spent another dime there since.

$800 for a $400 gun that's ridiculous, I don't blame you then. How the hell do they stay in business. I would hate to see them get a KSG or something that is scarce. Let me know when they go under so I can buy some inventory
